Eggless Muffins

Ingredients:

  • All-purpose flour ~ 1 cup
  • Oats ~ ⅔ cup
  • Cocoa powder ~ ⅓ cup
  • Sugar ~ ¾ cup
  • Baking powder ~ 1 tablespoon
  • Peanut butter ~ ½ cup
  • Milk ~ 1 cup

Steps:

  • Microwave the peanut butter and milk until the peanut butter has combined well. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • Mix together the flour, oats, cocoa, sugar and baking powder. Stir in the peanut butter/milk mixture to the dry ingredients, until mixed. Do NOT over mix, as this would lead to the muffins not raising well in the oven.
  • Spoon these into the muffin pan, filling it to the top. Add water to the empty cups to ensure even baking.
  • Place this in a pre-heated oven (preheat to 350°F) for about 20 to 25 mins. until done.
